Crossover vehicles can differ from some other vehicles in a few noticeable ways. Your vehicle may be:

Х Higher Ц to allow higher load carrying capacity.

Х Shorter Ц to give it the capability to approach inclines. All other things held equal, a shorter wheelbase may make your vehicle quicker to respond to steering inputs than a vehicle with a longer wheelbase.
Х Narrower Ц to provide greater maneuverability in tight spaces.

As a result of the above dimensional differences, crossover vehicles often

As a result of the above dimensional differences, crossover vehicles often will have a higher center of gravity and a greater difference in center of gravity between the loaded and unloaded condition.

These differences that make your vehicle so versatile also make it handle differently than an ordinary passenger car.
